Stewart McIsack-“When I got started with Vector in college looking for a summer job I had no idea of the impact it would have on my life. Personally, I maintain many of the relationships I had because of my time with Vector, and professionally, it set me down the path I am still on today. Let me start with the personal sides of things! I still consider many of the managers, reps and support staff to be close friends of mine. Some I wish I was able to stay in better contact with, but alas, we are all scattered around the country doing various things. To this day, many of you are mentors to me. Whether we talk occasionally, or I just remember the advice that was passed down to me in a memory of a day long ago, I still heed much of what was shared. To all of you, I want to say Thank You for the incredible 5 years I spent working with and alongside you. Professionally, I am still working from home as an Independent Contractor and have had many contracts with large organizations in various capacities. It is quite possible that if I did not apply to Vector some 15 years ago, I would not have found this area of the employment world. I am so blessed because of this. I regularly get to see my kids off to school and pick them up. I very often get to play athletics during the day, because the courts and courses are empty. I don’t ask for vacation time, but take lots because I can work while out of town. There are just so many blessings to being a successful independent contractor and Vector laid a structural foundation that I continue to stand proud on to this day. Today, I still sell the odd product from time to time. To you this will come no surprise, but the product is secondary to the system that Vector has in teaching life skills. To some fresh new person sitting in a training room, this will come as a major shock, and probably unbelievable, because the product is ridiculous. But given the right amount of time, we all come to learn that knives are one thing (and they are ridiculously good) but the friendships, life experiences and support is just worth so much more moving ahead on life’s journey.”
